Confit the tomatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Halve the tomatoes. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a generous drizzle of olive oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Arrange in a single layer and roast, without stirring, 13 to 15 min., until softened.

Boil the pasta
While the tomatoes confit, bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Boil the pasta, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 min., or until al dente. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain the pasta. Toss with a drizzle of olive oil to prevent sticking and set aside in a warm spot.

Make the sauce
While the pasta boils, in a large pan, heat a generous drizzle of olive oil on medium. Sauté the garlic and kale, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 min., until the kale has wilted. Add the pesto, honey, demi-glace, vinegar and 1 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until combined and reduced.

Combine the pasta
To the pan of sauce, add the pasta and ½ the reserved cooking water; season with the remaining spices. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until combined; season with S&P. If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency.
